Thirty Days of Thanks (minus three)--Also Known as 27 Days of Thanks

I read about the Thirty Days of Thanks bandwagon on Tortious's blog, and of course, it didn't take any arm twisting for me to jump on. Now if I can just remember to post every day; I've already missed the first few days of November.

I am thankful for the Whole Foods that opened last week; it's less than two miles from my house and across the street from my gym. My roommate and I had lunch there today, and it had the feel of a mall on the day after Thanksgiving. Despite the crowd (and high prices), I enjoyed the wide variety of things on my plate....seasoned chicken, banana chips, strawberries, spinach, edamame, vegan chocolate mousse, strawberry yogurt, chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and tons of other things. Afterwards I tempted myself with things I can't afford at Anthropologie, which is a short stroll from the grocery store. Then I met my (former) guest blogger friend Brian for some dodge ball "practice." Really it's just me trying to build up some arm strength.

p.s. I'm also thankful that all of my friends who took the bar this last July passed (Carson, Ivy, and Billy).

Dude, I just ate but join Libby in saying now I'm hungry! And I think the world would be a better place if more people realized how great banana chips are.

Whole Foods is the best, I almost have to limit how much I make a visit there.

I just went to Trader Joe's for the first time last weekend. I have yet to goto a Whole Foods.

I often refer to Whole Foods as Whole Paycheck. 5 things for $30? Though it doesn't stop me from going, and I find that their in house brand (365) is pretty good and well priced.

I think I'm weird because the spinach and the edamame sound the yummiest to me! I won't hold my breath as to when we're getting a Whole Foods in Macon!
